In this digital age, technology is playing an increasingly important role in both the preservation and development of minority languages. From blogs and video sharing to text messaging and social media, powerful technologies are shaping the future of minority languages. This movement is stretching the boundaries of minority language communities beyond “geographical place” into a “digital place,” bringing together communities from all regions of the world.

Hi type lovers,

The Graphic Artists Guild will be hosting an evening with Michael Doret (type designer, lettering artist, and print-designer extraordinaire) on Saturday night, October 23rd. We would love to have some hardcore typophiles attend if you're available.

Details available at http://losangeles.gag.org
and here's the event page on Facebook.

Anybody think they can come?

Hope to see you there,
Josh Korwin

For a third year in a row Punchcut will speak at SXSW Interactive in Austin. SXSW organizers have announced programming for 2010 and confirmed that Punchcut will present our talk Convergence: Already Here, and Gosh It's a Mess!.

Talk description: Convergence is here and it’s a big mess. People are using services and media within hacked-together ecosystems; systems without neat connections or beautiful symmetries. Punchcut will share the user insights and design principles needed to create applications and services that integrate into emerging digital lifestyles and convergent ecosystems.
